5:00am
we've already talked tea. so in this week's chasing life, we decide to talk about britain's second favorite liquid. alcohol. one of the hardest drinking countries in the world. a pub on almost every corner. >> probably between have 25 drinks, depending on a good or bad week. >> out on a friday or saturday night, i have five or six drinks.
5:01am
>> one drink can help your heart. it could reduce the risk of some cancers, but there are down sides, one big one? a lot of extra calories this is important. a six-ounce glass of red wine, a 12-ounce beer, two ounces of vodka, each have 150 calories. have one a day. almost 1,000 extra calories a week, and that doesn't include any mixers. think twice before you drink. all the extra calories could outweigh benefit. that will do it for "sgmd" from london. let us know what you think. now let's give it back to atlanta for a check of top stories in the cnn newsroom. from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is "cnn sunday morning. >> we will look around every corner, under every rock.
5:02am
>> l.a. police vow they will hunt him down. new developments in the bizarre case of this rogue excop. >> there is really no place to put the snow. >> cleaning up and digging out. the snow's finally stopped falling in the northeast. but get ready. another storm brewing right now. and tonight's the big night, and it's all about the dudes. so where do the women fit in this all-male affair? good morning, everyone. i'm deborah feyrick in for randi kaye. two big stories we're following. on the west most, new details on a suspected cop killer in southern california. on the east coast, recovery efforts under way in the aftermath of the monster blizzard. first, police plan to go door-to-door when they resume their search for accused triple
5:03am
killer christopher dorner in the area of big bear lake, california. a new surveillance video may provide key clues. let's go to paul vercammen at big bear lake. tell us about the surveillance video. what does it show? >> okay. that surveillance video was taken in the san diego area. it was from behind an auto parts store where there is an alley and dumpster. a man who appears to be dorner, his build, don't forget, almost unmistakable. six-feet tall, 270 pounds. this man throws some objects into the dumpster. later recovered, a magazine full of bullets, a military belt, a military helmet. and you can clearly see in the surveillance video, the truck that belonged to dorner this happened the morning after the murders in irvine, california, that dorner is tied to, including monica quan, the daughter of an ex-lapd officer.
5:04am
now, that truck was, of course, found later in the week burned out with a broken axle here in the big bear area and that, of course, the last sign or clue that anyone has to dorner's whereabouts, deborah. >> police are not saying very much. they are clearly looking for him. have they suggested that the magazine that's found, the belt found, something that i have been used in the killing of those two people? >> well, it stands to reason that they are kernel locertainl over that as evidence tied to the killings. as you pointed out, almost a virtual media blackout on the mountain yesterday. no one speaking about it but i'm sure they are starting to try to match the magazine, the belt, the helmet, all that to dorner and hope it provides some clues to where he might go. also, the location of the place -- the -- the national city, suggests that dorner likes
5:05am
to go in and through the san diego area and has some sort of ties there. we now he tried to commandeer a boat in that area. >> it's interesting. it seems he has said in his manifesto, he's going to be off the grid basically. but there are sightings of him, and he seems to be leaving a trail, whether that's a trail to throw police off or not, they are searching very aggressively in the area where you are at. >> well, absolutely, because, again, that's his last known whereabouts. the last everyone has seen of him. he did go off the grid. has been off the grid four days. this has been absolutely no sign of this deadly fugitive. and we should note, police are saying we are going to get our man. let's listen to the assistant chief with the riverside police. >> okay. we're going to come back to that sound bite in just a little while, paul. i do want to say, that this is
5:06am
just a frightening situation for the police and clearly they have the grammys coming up tonight, a big concern that something could happen then. all right, paul vercammen, checking in with you a little later on and this case takes a biz fwlar turn with the addition of charlie sheen. he was mentioned as "awesome" in christopher dorner's 11-page manifesto. he released a shord video the anga "anger management" star said together they can find a way to end the manhunt. the aftermath of the brutal winter storm that took the lives of nine people across the northeast. chris welch takes us state by state to get the impact. >> from pennsylvania to maine, the east coast is digging out after a massive blast of winter. >> there's just really no place to put the snow. >> on long island, people had to be rescued from cars left frozen
5:07am
in place in the middle of the road. one firefighter said it was like nothing he had ever seen. >> for them, very traumatic experience. some had no cell phone contact, and ran out of gas. >> a 12-year-old boy suffering carbon monoxide while sit in a car to keep warm. and ems crews got to a home to deliver a baby. >> thank god for them. they got us out of there. >> utility crews and rescuers do their work, andrew cuomo is calling for residents to stay out of way. >> please, stay in your homes. we do not need you on the roads. you have a large number of emergency vehicles and it is dangerous to be on the roads. >> meanwhile, some are just enjoying the winter weather. >> the snow so far has been really fun, right? >> yes, it's been really fun.
5:08am
>> the storm dropped snow at a furious rate of up to 4 or 5 inches an hour. parts of connecticut saw total snowfall as high as 38 inches. this time lapse video shot on a deck in hamden, connecticut, the snow eventually covers the lens. the blizzard knocked out power to more than 635,000 customers. >> power has been restored to a third of those people. and states like massachusetts and connecticut have lifted travel bans. chris welch, thanks. the city of boston digging out from 25 inches of snow. the fifty biggest snowfall in the city's history. we find indra petersons. what is it like so early in the city? still in shade, means colder once the sun comes out. >> yeah, finally, i'm not standing in this blizzard anymore, right? not seeing heavy snow and strong
5:09am
gusts trying to tip me over. but we're dealing with 308,000 people in the state of massachusetts without power, and as you mentioned, take a look at all of the snow out here. 24.9 inches to be impact as you mentioned. fifth largest amount the city has ever seen, so the question today is how are we going to clean up the snow? what are we going to do? here is the problem, the sun that's up, that means we'll talk about the snow melting, we are trying to clean it up just right behind me. we only have one day to clean it up. here are the conditions, today people can drive around, get back to normal. what they can't do is park on city streets. we have a snow emergency in effect, so with that, they are doing everything they can to clean it up before temperatures come up today. 34 degrees, that's the expected high, and with that we could see all of this causing some urban flooding. by tomorrow, another storm is headed this way and what does that mean? first, more ice, and then additional rain so all of the flooding concerns will only be enhanced through tomorrow.
5:10am
we add to that travel concerns. logan opened up a runway. hoping get back on track through today. >> indra petersons. we cued the snow -- the plow right on time. all right. thanks so much, inra petersons in boston. monday morning's commute may be a bit messy in the northeast, may also be dangerous. meteorologist alexandra steele to tell us if the weather will do anything to help. >> what we'll see today is not a help, but not a lot of melting, temperatures still cold. temperatures in the toonz, highs today in the thirtsthe 30s. winds shift, take temperatures in the 40s. 47 in springfield, hartford, boston. the problem we will see, because we are going to see rain move in, especially in storm drain areas where the storm drains are clogged by the snow. that's the potential where urban flooding could be a concern. we have this next storm moving
5:11am
in as indra was talking about. for tomorrow, the morning, temperatures about 30 degrees, a mix of rain and snow, by the afternoon, we'll see it all change over as temperatures rise to 43, but winds will be notable. wind and rain tomorrow for the commute home in boston. south of that, in new york city, it's going to be a little different. an all-rain affair. all rain. by the afternoon commute, we'll watch this rain end about 2:00 or 3:00. 3:00, 5:00, 6:00. it will be dry. blizzard conditions, actually blizzard warnings for the dakotas and nebraska. rain today in chicago. about half an inch. just a rainmaker, duluth to the twin cities, a few inches of snow. between 4 and 6. monday morning, here is the rain in the northeast. and exacerbating potential flooding problems because it's rain and we'll see the snow we've seen, maybe clog the storm drains, by the time the afternoon hits, we'll see
5:12am
clearing in new york and it will push off and temperatures will warm up. a few issues, and at night, of course, we'll watch temperatures cool so melting may refreeze. a bit of a roller coaster the next couple of days. >> a whole new set of challenges for people trying to get to work. can't wait for the grammys tonight? you are in luck. predictions and a look at music's biggest night with a panel of culture and entertain experts. polident kills 99.99% of odor causing bacteria and helps dissolve stains. that's why i recommend polident.

5:15am
♪ ♪ if i fail, if i succeed at least i lived as i believe ♪ ♪ no matter what they take from me ♪ >> so hard to believe it's been a year since whitney houston died on the eve of last year's grammy awards. clive davis paid tribute to the star by what else? playing houston's music at the beverly hilton hotel.
5:16am
tonight is music's big night. the grammy awards kick off in about 12 hours. we right here this morning, giving agiv giving you a special preview with entertainment journalist john murray and bradley jacobs. last year belonged to adele. this year, it's very much a boys club at the grammys. major nods, male artists, mumford & sons, frank ocean, kanye west, jay-z, coveted album of the year, nominees, i sound like a presenter so excited. the black peas, el camp ino, babble by mumford & sons, channel orange and blunderbuss. so, georgia, what are your predictions. who will take it home? >> i think it will be a big night for frank ocean. frank is having what i would like to call success de esteem.
5:17am
his peers love his project, even though it's not that commercially viable. hasn't been a huge massive radio hits, but clearly the industry loves it, which is why he's in so many categories. >> amazing. he hasn't sold more than a million albums in terms of sales. did i just say albums? >> we still use that word too deb. >> okay. well. are we expecting any big surprises at tonight's show? >> i don't know about big surprises. what you will see is justin timberlake open the show and he has not performed on the grammys for four years. but you know, he has a new album out in a few months, single suit and tie. i feel like that's something really will be drawing people. i don't think you will see the ratings that we saw last year, which was adele's big year. she had the biggest album since
5:18am
thriller, took home all of the grammys, i don't think it will be quite that big, but, of course, you have all of the artists nominated, all of the male artists, but you will see tale or swift, and kelly clarkson doing a duet with bruno mars and sting. all of them together doing a mashup. there are a lot of kind of fund things going on tonight. >> and what is so amazing to me, because everybody is talking about this, i was going over some of the -- the clothes that are the artists were wearing last year, and it's just -- you know, less material than most clothing that the average person wears. cbs is aware of this. they sent out a dress code. what do you think, john? you think that will fly or they will challenge it? >> they are understatementing these artists. you can be creative and innovative without being half naked. an artist named dottie peoples that wore an american flag gown. no one in the mainstream knew
5:19am
her prior to grammy night, but she was in all of the celebrity weeklies a week later. and lady gaga wore the meat dress a few years ago, the only flesh she was showing came from a cow. some artists from okay, go, dressed up like a high-fashion sword fighters one year. you can cover up and be innovative. i believe we will see creative at its best tonight. >> brad, maybe this goes to your point, grammys won't get the viewership she got last year in part because who wants to see somebody wearing a buttoned up i don't know dress? >> i can't wait to see the person come in in all black, up to here in response to this, that all the artists be demure. i think it's very ironic this is rock and roll and for the grammy folks to come out and just a few days before the event and say, oh, by the way, you know, don't show any flesh. don't show anything puffy.
5:20am
i like that -- that suggestion. you know, i think of some of the greatest outfits in grammy history like jennifer lopez in that versace dress. versace scarf that you showed about a minute ago. you know, that toni braxton in her butt bearing dress a while ago. these are some of the greatest moments in fashion history. and i just think it's strange that the grammys would suggest people kind of tone it down. >> yeah, because it almost shows the sort of flair, creativeity, provocation that all of the artists harness to make their music so spectacular. we're out of time. georgia, john murray and "us weekly's" brad jacobs, thanks. tomorrow, he will be the 80th person to receive the congressional medal of honor and only the fourth to do so while still living. we'll tell you about the bravery of clinton romoche.

with explosions and flames all around them, chaos erupted at an american outpost in afghanistan. during that life and death attack, more than three years ago, one man stood out former staff sergeant clint romesha. and he is set to receive the medal of honor tomorrow. he sat down with our own jake tapper. >> there is movement everywhere. muzzle flashes everywhere, you couldn't pick them out fast enough. >> reporter: october 2009. up to 400 taliban fighters
5:25am
unleashed a torrent of withering fire on a remote u.s. outpost in eastern afghanistan. the attack so fierce, in the end, more than half of the 53 u.s. troops at the post were killed or wounded. but as buildings burned and the enemy ran freely through the outpost, soldiers became heroes. one in particular. >> i know that there are so many great soldiers out there that would have stepped in to my shoes and dub the same thing. >> former staff sergeant clint romesha is a reluctant hero he help plan the recapture of keating and led soldiers in a grueling day-long battle. next week, romesha will receive the medal of honor, the fourth living recipient among those who served in afghanistan and iraq. chris jones was a young private under romesha's command when the

taliban struck. >> he is, in my opinion, the only reason we came back that day. >>. >> reporter: you led them right into place where is your fellow soldier has already been killed. that's why you are getting this medal. others had died in a place that you ran into. you weren't worried? >> there wasn't time to sit there and worry about stuff out of our control. we had the tools, we had the training, we had the spirit. and we had the support of each other. and it was the time. >> reporter: by the end of the day, eight soldiers were dead, and 23 wounded. clint romesha now has a place in history. one he shares with his comrades. >> it's a great honor for me to know i couldn't have done what i did without those guys, that

5:33am
obama's inauguration. the first lady attended the funeral and met with the teen's friends and family. a spokeswoman for florida governor jeb bush condemns the hacking of bush family e-mails calling it an outrageous breach of privacy. private messages and photos were made public last week, those e-mails included plans for the funeral of former president george h.w. bush and portraits that former president george w. bush painted of himself in the bathtub. toughest sheriff in america has joined forces with a tough action movie star, joseph arpaio and steven seagal met to train armed volunteer posse members. they will protect against gunmen in phoenix area schools. arpaio came up with the idea for the posse after the shooting in newtown, connecticut. segal taught the trainees hand-to-hand combat and defense
5:34am
tactics. today on "faces of faith," a look at a new reality show. the ladies are brash and bold. they've got big personalities and even bigger drama. you might think we're talking about the latest real housewives. no. the ladies we are talking about are ladies who pray. tlc's "sisterhood," following the lives of the women behind the women of the men who lead some of the biggest churches in atlanta. take a look. >> in the church world, a pastor's wife is called a first lady. are you going to do good. give me a kiss. >> when are you married to a pastor, you're held to a higher standard. >> a first lady has to appear perfect. she sets the standard for the congregation. >> if you pull back the curtain and see us for who we, would you be shocked. >> this show has its share of
5:35am
controversy from the behavior of the women to the racy topics. this morning, we're delighted to be joining two of the stars of "sisterhood." pastor miles rutherford and his wife alana. thank you so much. such a fascinating sort of look. a surprising look as well. you know, it's interesting, because this really shows a different side. why did you decide to do the show? >> we prayed, deborah, for three months about this, just asking god, and the reason we did this, pastor miles and i, we felt like it was an assignment from god. god wants his people to go to the world. god loved the world, not just the church so we wanted to go to be a light to the world as much as we could be. >> it's fascinating. if i were to meet you on the street, i would not necessarily say, oh, that's a pastor and his wife. >> right. >> you don't necessarily fit the mold. >> yes.
5:36am
>> and that sort of comes out on this series, because a lot of the wives talking about subjects like sex and other sort of -- porn. >> right. >> what's behind that? that's surprising. many people will find that surprising. >> absolutely. i always say, even through the show. we're responsible for our actions, so we chose not to have certain conversations on this show. i think some things were meant to be kept private within your household, so i can't answer for the other ladies. i can answer for what we put and the content we put out on "the sisterhood." >> we did invite some of the other ladies, they didn't want to come. do you look at the show and say, oh, my god. how could she go there? >> i'm so godly proud of my wife, what she's put out there been a light to the world. >> thank you. >> some of the scenes surely are a little abrupt to the world and that's fine. and this -- this life that we live, you know, we have to realize that we are normal people, but at the same time,
5:37am
we -- we choose to go for holiness and godliness, and that's really what my wife has represented on the show, and i'm so godly proud of that. >> thank you. >> what's interesting. as i mentioned we did offer some of the other pastor wives to come on the show. they refused. that doesn't suggest sort of sisterly love or good will toward all. what's going on? >> you know, like i said. the show is called sisterhood, but i don't know that i could say there's a lot of -- as far as my part, you know, we don't go eat lunch outside of the show, different things like that. i can't answer for them. i can only answer for pastor myles and i, what we are doing. and i pray what we put out there, that we can be a light to somebody in what we are representing. >> so what are you representing? and why aren't the other pastor wives sort of on board? >> you know i think we all come from different walks of life and we all have perspectives and we all have desires and reasons why
5:38am
we do things. again what we want to represent is a godly marriage. we have two wonderful children, brooklyn and lincoln. an amazing church. worship with wonders. we want the end of the show to be intact and still be proud of what their pastors have put out there. >> absolutely. >> i want you to take a listen to a sound bite from one of our other cast members. let's listen. >> this tis the house where i smoked my first crack pipe in. >> a lot people don't know about me. >> better watch myself, girl. >> people don't expect a preacher and preacher's wife to have a good sex life. >> i had sex and i got diseases. >> it's very difficult to be a first lady. very difficult. >> okay, so what you have seen there, people talking about basically bondage, sexually transmitted diseases, and crack.
5:39am
what kind of a message does that send? that is extremely controversial. is that the message? >> you know, the bible talks a lot about where we were before. and then he says, you know, there are certain people that will not enter the kingdom of heaven. certain things that people do. but we were washed in the blood of jesus. the blood of jesus doesn't give us grace to do what we want to do like said, my wife and i are responsible for our actions, we want the world to see the love of jesus christ on the show through us, holiness and godliness of something inside. not something on the outside. so, you know, when we're talking about sex and things, yes, in the confines of marriage. do we have handcuffs? no, we don't do that. that's not something we do. but it's not something i'm going to be controversial. we are called to pray, to love our brothers and sisters in the church no, matter what walk they are in life. we're all in different places in
5:40am
god. we've got to love everybody, that's what we're called to do. >> very quickly, how -- again, you don't come off looking like the typical pastor and pastor wife. what is it that defines your church would you say? >> oh, wow. there are so many amazing things. our church is full of people with -- multicultural, multiracial, and people are radical -- just freedom in our ministry. so many different walks of life. delivered from drug addicts to you name it, and we have it in our church and we're so grateful that god has freed them in the ministry. >> you open to everybody. >> everybody. >> those folks who hit rock bottom, always a home. >> you don't have to -- we look at church like we have to get cleaned up to go to church. that's not what god wants. we don't go to a car wash when our car is clean. a church is a place that's
5:41am
supposed to take things off of us. no matter where you are, you can worship godfreyly and find your salvation. >> thank you. >> good luck. interesting to talk to you when the season is over. tell us the real story. thank you so much. we appreciate it. for more stories on faith, check out our belief blog. the state of the union, the president's moment to speak to america. we'll get a preview. come on. nowadays, lots of people go by themselves. no they don't. yeah... hey son. have fun tonight. ♪ prom!

call the number on your screen now! a memo from the obama administration was made public that justifies the use of drones on american citizens on the war on terror. news that much of the american public learned about from this drone. >> in all fairness, drones are precise and deadly, just like wolf blitzer's knowledge -- fast knowledge of washington, d.c. politics, so drones were very much in the spotlight this week when cia nominee john brennan testified. bob gates complimented the escalation of drone strikes under president obama. does he still support the program. let's ask candy crowley in washington. you spoke to bob gates. what does he have to say? >> first, remember too, he was also defense secretary in the latter years of the bush
5:52am
administration, so he spans both the beginning of the use of those drones, particularly to pakistan, and the escalation in the obama era, and he is still a supporter. he still believes when people say, are you killing innocent people, and they say this is a weapon that is very precise. he doesn't suggest that no innocent are killed in the use of these drones, but he suggests that it is much more precise than the -- what we would call a traditional bombing of that sort. a big supporter, he does have reservations about the process used when americans are targeted by drones. americans associated by terrorism. >> sure. anwar al awlaki killed in a drone strike. >> big, big week in washington. lots of people looking forward to the state of the union speech. what can we expect? >> well, i think exactly what the white house told us on the day of the inauguration speech, which is the inauguration sets
5:53am
out the kind of the -- the -- if you were doing an outline, the broad units that he wants to talk about. the state of the union, it's a little more into the detail, okay? here is what we -- what i want to do, how i want to do it. it also sets priorities. sometimes you get a laundry list, think what is the priority here? it sounds like the president's priority certainly from what we hear in the talk he gave to democrats at the retreat is that he is returning to the economic -- we talked about guns and immigration and those are certainly on the front burner. overall, i expect this will talk about things he wants to do to help the folks that brought him to the dance. he thinks that is the middle class. >> all right. candy crowley, thank you so much. i find it fascinating to see who he names and who stands up during the speeches. you can keep it here for more on "state of the union" that will
